All wines will be available for sale a special pricing during the tasting.

“In the late 1970s, Neal I. Rosenthal set out to learn everything he could about wine. He opened a small wine shop and, shortly thereafter, a wine-importing business. Today he is one of the most successful importers of traditionally made wines crafted at limited-production, family-owned vineyards in France and Italy.”
RWM is proud of the fact that our selection is distinctive and expresses a consistent style. We have never purchased wine to simply fill a slot or a missing appellation. Each grower is visited twice yearly to follow the evolution of the wines and to track the development of each estate. The entire sales staff also visits each grower so that the nuances of each domaine can be successfully communicated to the American marketplace. We note with pride that our list of growers has remained rather constant over the years. This is a testament to the richness of our relationships with our suppliers. We conscientiously work with our producers to insure that they stay on course. A hallmark of our success is that together we have weathered the occasional difficult vintage because of the extraordinary partnerships we have formed with our suppliers and the understanding on the part of each of these suppliers of the obligation to provide RWM with wine of character and class every year.
Despite his youth, Joseph Frederick is well-traveled having spent his growing-up years in places as diverse as Rio de Janeiro, Bogota and Madrid. He is based in Florida and is bilingual in English and Spanish. Joseph has been involved in the wine trade for a dozen years, having worked as a sommelier, an independent wine consultant and, most recently, as the key sales representative for a small, family-run wine distributor in the Florida market with a strong Burgundy portfolio. He will now extend his reach to cover the southeastern region of the USA for RWM.
